Millennials are simply not going to casinos nearly as much as other generations. They don’t find them as interesting or appealing as some other people did. They don’t like the fact that luck plays such a big role in what type of night you are going to have at the establishment. While poker and certain other skill games are seen as fun by millennials, they do not much care for slots.
The New York Times says that the casinos are trying to work on ways to attract millennials back to the casino. They want to work on a social gaming experience that would appeal to these younger generations.
Young people like to play video games and obviously like to be social with one another. The combination of these two things may be the only way in which millennials will be attracted back into the building.
Social gaming still has to be profitable for the casinos, so they need to add skill aspects to the game while at the same time maintaining the luck factor that keeps them profitable for the casino.
It is going to be an interesting balance for the casinos to try to pull off. They have to be careful not to alienate the customers that they already have. It is something that has been developing for a while now, but it is really starting to heat up now. The casinos are in intense competition with one another and none of them want to lose out in this particular war.
